PTS asks that lots be cleared for football parking

Parking & Transportation Services (PTS) and the Athletic Department again are asking for employees’ assistance, as they work to provide parking for the 2012 U-M home football season.

They request that all personal and university vehicles be parked at off-site locations away from the Michigan Stadium area by 11 p.m. each Friday prior to home football games. Any vehicles in lots after 11 p.m. will be subject to towing.

The remaining home games this year are:

• Oct. 13 — Illinois.
• Oct. 20 — Michigan State.
• Nov. 10 — Northwestern.
• Nov. 17— Iowa.

The lots to be vacated by all vehicles are:

• SC2 — Blue lot between Keech and Hoover streets.
• SC3 — Service Center at Administrative Services Building.
• SC4 — Yellow lot on Kipke Drive.
• SC5 — Yellow lot on Kipke Drive.
• SC6 — Orange lot west of Kipke Drive.
• SC7 — Orange lot east of Kipke Drive.
• SC9 — Yellow (Coliseum) lot at Hill and Division streets.
• SC11 — U-M Business Vehicle lot on Hoover Street at the Physical Properties Building. *
• SC12 — Blue lot on Greene Street.
• SC13 — Blue lot on Greene Street.
• SC14 — Blue lot at Hoover and Greene streets.
• SC32 — Visitor lot on Greene Street.
• SC35 — Yellow lot between Keech and Hoover streets.
• SC36 — Orange lot at Keech and Main streets .**
• SC37 — Blue lot on Hoover at Revelli Hall.
• SC38 — Yellow lot at Division and Hill streets.
• SC41 — Orange lot on Hoover Street.

On-call staff and staff with regular work schedules on Saturdays will be accommodated on South Campus whenever possible. With as much advance notice as possible, please email PTS (umpark@umich.edu) with the names of those working and the dates. The football coordinator will confirm their parking arrangements by return email. Contact PTS at 734-647-3615 for help identifying alternative parking locations for U-M vehicles.

Employees working on South Campus on Saturdays before, during or after home football games should be aware that Keech Street at the north end of Michigan Stadium will be closed to all traffic, except emergency vehicles, two hours before kick-off until approximately one hour after the game ends. In addition, Greene Street south of Hoover Street will be one-way southbound until the game ends.

For a map of the affected lots, go to www.pts.umich.edu/maps/central_south.pdf.

*  In SC11, it is especially important to remove U-M vehicles, because this is where staff working on Saturdays will park.
** On home game weekends, the eastern half (cemented area) of SC36 will be closed to parkers from 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
